nsv's

So apparently my work has caught on that I like to blog on the clock, and they've now blocked me from logging into this on my work computer. I can open my page, but the tiny little strip at the top that says "log in" is restricted. Bastards.

I went to Iowa to see my friend, and I had some really great NSVs while I was there.

*Went out to eat at the Olive Garden and even though I wanted something creamy/cheesy, I got soup & salad

*Was able to fit into an XXL on the "normal" side of Target. It was a little snug in my shoulders, or I would have purchased it.

*Fit into size 20 dress pants at Old Navy. They gave me one monster of a camel toe, so they weren't quite ready for a purchase. Noone needs to see that. But 20s!!!

*I've been looking for a new coat for over a month. I haven't been able to find anything cute around here, so I looked in Iowa. We went to a department store in the mall, and almost everything that they had was just "regular" sizes. I found a really cute peacoat that I LOVED. They had it in an XL and a XXL. I just ignored the XL. I said "oh, well I can't wear that, it's only an XL". I tried the XXL knowing it would be too big, and it was. My friend said "Well try this one, then you'll know how far you have to go!". So I tried it. And it fit. Not like ALMOST fit, but FIT.

Heather said...

those are some great NSVs!! especially the one about olive garden...that place is so hard to go to and eat well there. just walking in the door makes you want to eat all the cheesey gooey pasta. size 20 at old navy is AWESOME and congrats on the coat. see, sometimes we just need to go and try it and not listen to our brains that are saying, you wont fit in it.

The camel toe comment made me laugh out loud! You are so funny!
YAY for smaller clothing!
You know those Old Navy 20's are actually smaller than other brand 20's so you are really kicking butt!
Good job and hope you post pictures of your new coat!
:)
Sorry also that your job blocked you from blogging! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

I've been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now. I'm sorry you've had such a rough time lately, but you sound like you're doing pretty well. How fantastic that you didn't resort to old habits and go for the emotional binging??! Well done to you. Stay strong.
Also...could somebody PLEASE tell me.....what the hell are NSV's? Everybody mentions them on their blogs and i have no idea!! Sorry to sound like a dumb ass but somebody please put me out of my misery!!!

I LOVE to shop at Target - but it has been quite a few years since I have fit into their clothes. Im looking forward to being able to shop their again - great price / great style. Just a few more pounds.
